The Real Inspector Hound is one of Stoppard's finest plays, and this volume has quite a few more gems in it. Hound is one of my favourites for it's blurring the lines between theatre and reality; we watch two critics watching a play who eventually get caught up in the action. The setting is much more complex, with a whole counter-weight system, shifting light bulbs between different lamps, and an on-stage furniture re-arrangement.

The Real Inspector Hound is a short, one-act play by Tom Stoppard. The plot follows two theatre critics named Moon and Birdboot who are watching a ludicrous setup of a country house murder mystery, in the style of a whodunit. By chance, they become involved in the action causing a series of events that parallel the play they are watching. The play was written between 1961 and 1962, drawing on Stoppard's experiences as a Bristol theatre critic

In such an unlikely way, Tom Stoppard came to light. Times), The Real Inspector Hound (1968; "lightweight," . Times), and After Magritte.

The earliest of these plays, The Real Inspector Hound, grew out of a few pages I wrote in 1960 and came back to in 1967. There were no critics in the story when I began it. Moon and Birdboot started off simply as two people in an audience, until it occurred to me that making them critics would give them something to be, and give me something to play with. As for Higgs, Moon’s first-string senior, he remained an off-stage character until (well into the 1967 version) I realized that he was the perfect answer to my problem: who was the corpse under the sofa?

The Real Inspector Hound is a short, one-act play by Tom Stoppard. After Magritte is an example of Surrealism in the arts, in which what is seen by the naked eye is not what the art necessarily expresses. The basis of the surrealism in this play is the predisposition of Rene Magritte as a surrealist painter; Stoppard sought.

Tom Stoppard here tries to create a totally magrittian world.
As for the visual part, it is easy since Magritte was a painter. Chaotic, illogical, absurd visual elements and characters. Some elements are moved to create new absurd tableaux, even when they are apparently the results of logical movements.
It is trickier to do the same with the dialogue of the play. He uses confusing words. He uses absurd language about an absent character that is described and interpreted in all kinds of ways by the various characters at various moments.
But what about the plot ? Stoppard throws two cops into the tableau and they are so logical that they are entangled into absurd logical lines and come to absurd conclusions. The world becomes both kafkaian and orwellian, though it remains a comedy, or even a farce.
Brilliantly done. Some details in the text are only visual, and would be hard to vocalize, for example the pun, on « lute- loot ».

Real Inspector Hound- What a wonderfull piece of work by stoppard. Weird, yet very interesting and funny. Full of humour and twists and turns. A very original idea and created many laughs. I fully recommend picking up this play and giving it a shot. Stoppard, you've done it again.
After Magritte- Hilarious. Interesting. Wow. This play tends to verge on odd but it is very good. I enjoyed reading this. There is never a dull moment, and is always full of laughs (if you can understand what is going on). I also recommend this play. Stoppard, I love you!
